3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel, though adequate, needs some serious updating. It was okay for a three night stay, but just looks tired. Good location, though. Wifi works. Pictures online do not capture real condition. There was a continental breakfast. Staff was nice.

Lots of reasons to stay - No need to move your vehicle when taking in the Gatlinburg attractions. Rooms are nicely decorated with a fridge and microwave in room. Beds were comfy. All staff, including office and housekeeping, were friendly and efficient. Only con (if it can be called that) is that parking is limited, but they do provide an... More

Close to the strip, clean and reasonable. We stayed 3 nights and it was perfect. Highly recommended! Jacuzzi was great and the front desk help couldn't have been more helpful. I fully recommend staying here.

Room on the 4th floor with jacuzzi tub in the room and balcony overlooking the creek. Checkin guy was a delight (tall fair haired guy) room very clean and comfortable. Loved our stay, totally recommend it. Also has a fireplace if you come in the winter. Saw a beautiful blue jay on the balcony, made my day.

Found this place by searching on the internet, no familiarity with the area other than being there one time 40 years ago. We hit it lucky! Loved this place: location, extremely clean, freshly decorated, balcony, stream, great breakfast choices, enjoyed the afternoon cookies and lemonade, very comfy beds, large room with pretty fireplace, and extremely friendly and helpful employees.

I stayed at Old Creek Lodge with my Mom. It was the week before Labor Day so Gatlinburg was not overcrowded like most times I've gone, plus I was not there over a weekend. The people who welcomed us at the lodge were some of the friendliest people I have ever met. And the room was one of thecleanest and... More

I actually went to Econo Lodge because I stayed there last year but they weren't able to get us in until 3 pm so we decided to go somewhere else. I'm so happy we did, Old Creek Lodge is absolutely beautiful with a great balcony view. It was well worth the money. I will definitely try to stay here from... More

My family stayed here for 2 nights. It is located off the main avenue, in a quieter section, overlooking a pretty creek. All rooms look out over the creek and have nice balconies. All the sites/restaurants in town are walkable from the hotel. Room was nice and clean. Breakfasts are very simple. Price was fantastic.

Our family spent six nights at Old Creek during our vacation. The front desk personnel went out of their way to make our stay a pleasant one. Room was clean and the wifi worked very well. The location is about perfect for touring Gatlinburg's strip. You are close enough to easily get to all the sites and yet far enough... More
